Is the study of the Aiki Ken and Jo important to your progress?
There are a variety of schools of thought as to whether study of the Aiki Ken and Jo is essential to developing the well-rounded aikidoka. When making your personal decision, consider the following. Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba was very serious about his study of the ken and jo from his middle years onward. He considered knowledge of these weapons as a key component of “Takemusu Aiki,” the highest level of attainment in the art where one is capable of spontaneously executing techniques perfectly suited to the circumstances. Moreover, weapons practice strengthens the entire body, enhances hip stability and an understanding of maai (combative distance). Many who have not had access to aikido weapons training have sought to fill this gap by studying various outside systems such as iaido and classical Japanese weapons schools. Fortunately, aikido does include an elaborate weapons curriculum and these DVDs will open up a new dimension in your training. Highly recommended for every serious aikidoka!
Our affordably-priced “Weekly Specials” are intended to bring our extensive catalog of essential products on Aikido and its most significant figures within easy grasp of most devotees of the art. Your investment of $24.95 will be well spent and prove a continued source of study and inspiration!
